"Longneck Bottle" is a song written by Steve Wariner and Rick Carnes, and recorded by American country music artist Garth Brooks. It was released in November 1997 as the first single from his album Sevens. Wariner also plays acoustic guitar and sings background vocals on the song.


The song's b-side, "Rollin'," was an album track from Brooks's last studio album, 1995's Fresh Horses. That song had charted in late 1995, reaching #71 on the Billboard country charts for the week of December 9.[1]

Released as a single in late 1997, "Longneck Bottle" was added to the playlists of all 222 stations that were surveyed by Radio & Records magazine at the time,[2] boosting it to a debut at #10 on that publication's country music singles charts (Brooks's highest chart debut at the time). The song also debuted at #27 on the Billboard charts.

On the RPM Country Tracks charts in Canada, it debuted at #60 for the week of December 1, 1997, and was Number One only one week later. It held the Number One position on the chart week of December 15 as well, while the charts for the next three weeks (December 22, December 29, and January 5) were all frozen. January 12, 1998, the next RPM chart to be published, also had the song at Number One, although it fell to #2 the next week when "Don't Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)" by Shania Twain took over. "Longneck Bottle" reclaimed the Number One position on this chart on January 26, for its fourth and final week at Number One in Canada.
